Rendering: DBOX for Alagem Capital Group
Los Angeles leans more concrete jungle than tropical oasis, but the newest renderings for the recently-approved One Beverly Hills condo and hotel project suggest otherwise.
The $2 billion complex by developers Alagem Capital Group and Cain International will deliver two high-rise condominium towers, a luxury hotel and botanical gardens to a 17.5-acre site next to the Beverly Hilton.
Designed by Foster + Partners, alongside Gensler and RIOS, the new renderings provide a closer look at the condo interiors and amenities, redesigned areas of the Beverly Hilton, the new and improved conference center, and the lavish hotel suites.
The twin residential towers will rise 28 and 32 stories, bringing 303 condominium units to market. The new renderings depict a sheltered drop-off area with double-height ceilings and lush landscaping. A private residential pool with a stunning waterfall feature is surrounded by towering palm trees and includes plenty of lounge seating.
Meantime, the interior renderings of a living room and solarium showcase curvilinear, floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto a wrap-around balcony. The suite is spacious and open-concept, with a mix of natural stone and hardwood flooring that helps to define each ‘zone.’
The Beverly Hilton is set to undergo significant changes, with a reimagined arrival court and lobby, pool deck and outdoor dining area, and an indoor pool-adjacent lounge and restaurant. The pool has a resort-like feel and includes an island planter, while the lounge looks bright and airy and boasts contemporary furnishings.
The 10-story hotel-condo hybrid will feature 42 guest rooms, 37 branded residential units and a fine-dining restaurant. A rendering of an ultra-luxe hotel suite portrays a generously-sized terrace with a plunge pool that divides the sleeping quarters from the living and dining area. Another illustrates the operable window walls that promote indoor/outdoor living, and wood-paneled walls that lend warmth to the space.
The current Beverly Hilton conference center is being replaced with a brand new facility designed to foster collaboration and host special events. A light-filled breakout area features lush views of the botanical gardens and offers several different types of seating in addition to private conference rooms.
Other renderings show how the conference center’s indoor and outdoor spaces could be set up for an event. The outdoor area touts a grassy lawn, flowering trees and shaded areas created by overhangs, while the expansive indoor event space includes operable window walls and a muted color palette.
While renderings are just an artist’s depiction of what a project could ultimately look like, the latest images of One Beverly Hills paint a rosy picture of a mixed-use development inspired by biophilic design principles.
